Investigating the Protection Cages used on the Sea Turtle Nests in North Cyprus


As a group of 3 engineering students, we went on a self-proposed trip to north Cyprus to investigate the protection cages used on the sea turtle (green sea turtles and loggerheads) nests. The main purposes of these cages are to protect the nests from predators such as dogs and foxes and raise visual awareness in order to avoid human disruption. We met with 2 different organisations and visited 4 different beaches trying to review the current designs in use with the base teams. Our main aims were to improve the design and reduce the use of plastic as much as possible.
